I used the new Butterfly Background stamp set with the Count Your Rainbows Stamp and Die Bundle.

To make this card, stamp the Butterfly Background stamp with Versamark ink. Then heat set with a white embossing powder. Once cooled, ink blend with Distress oxide ink in Blueprint Sketch, Salty ocean, and Tumbled Glass. Then i stamped the rainbow, sun and clouds. I colored the rainbow with alcohol markers. Die cut the images and adhere the images with foam squares. I finished by adding a few sequins for a little bling.

For this card I used my gelpress and low tack tape to create the striped background. Then I ink blended black ink over it using the Delightfully Delicate Stencil. I fussy cut the floral image from Consider the Wildflowers set. Then I heat embossed in white the sentiment from the Everyday Greetings set on black cardstock.

Welcome to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers + Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop!

Leave a little comment love at each stop as you hop about for a chance to win a $25 gift code to the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps shop.

I’m so excited to be apart of the hop! Here is my card.

This is a gatefold card but with a twist. The big coffee cup is popped up and hold the side gates in place. It unfolds showing several panels.

Folded the card measures 4×5.5 inches and will fit in an A2 size envelope. To make this card you need a piece of cardstock that is 11×5.5 inches. On the 11 inch side score on the following marks 1.75, 3.5, 5.25, 5.75, 7.5, 9.25. I cut panels for each section a quarter of an inch smaller than the one before so they nest inside of each other. The large coffee cup is from the Sweet N Sassy Stamps I Like Big Cups stamp set. I fussy cut the cup out then layered the cup with stamps from the Delightfully Delicate Background stamp and the Typewriter Text Background stamp.

The sentiment on the cup is from the Fill Me Up Clear set and the Love Wordfetti set. I only used a “you are” from the Love Wordfetti set to complete my sentiment.

I think this a fun “guy coffee card”! Thank you so much for visiting me today!

Tissue Cards with Fun Stampers Journey

Whether you need some tissue because it’s allergy season or just because things are a little tough, it’s a great time to give tissue cards.

These little cuties hold a travel tissue packet . They also open and close so you can write a message and access the tissue. These are a cute little pick me up to give your friends and family or even a total stranger. Here are the items I used to make them and how to put them together.

Here’s a look at the inside of the card without the tissue packet.

To form the base you will need a piece of cardstock that is 9.75×4.25. Next you will need to score your base going left to right at 2.25 inches, 3.25, 5.5, 6.5, 8.75. This will fit most travel tissue packets. Then you will want to die cut an oval or rectangle out of the panel that is 2.25 inches wide, the one in the center. Burnish all your score lines and and adhere the last 1 inch section to the 1st one inch section. If you plan on stamping a pattern on your card stock like I did, then stamp before you burnish and glue the score lines, so your base is still flat. Once your base is finished, add some double sided tape to the back of the tissue packet and insert and stick it to the bottom of the holder you made. This will keep the tissue from sliding out, so your card will be portable. Make sure to open the tissue packet so the tissue can pop out of your opening and be easy to pull out.

Below are close ups of each tissue card and the stamps I used. All stamps are from Fun Stampers Journey, which is sold on the Spellbinder’s web site.

For this card I used the Spread Happiness Stamp and die set for the front of the card and the background stamping. The sentiment from the inside is from the Backyard Blooms Stamp set. I colored the flowers with Color Splash pencils, which are water color pencils. The base is Pineapple Smoothie cardstock with Lavender Fusion Gingham ribbon.

This tissue card has a base in Bubble Gum Cardstock. I stamped the background with the ATS stamp Ornate Blooms (no longer available). The front and inside sentiments are from the Divatude Stamp set. Black ribbon is from my stash.

I used Lavender Fusion cardstock for the base. The hydrangea and sentiments come from the Bloom Burst stamp set (no longer available). I used Huckleberry ink on the flower and Lemongrass on the leaves. The ribbon is from my stash.

I used Tin Pail cardstock, which is a really soft grey. I stamped it with the Flannel Life Background Stamp in Riverstone Ink. The critters are from the It’s Cold Outside stamp and die set. Inside sentiment is from Backyard Blooms. Ribbon is from my stash.
